SX 77 NE
- Outbuilding approximately 15
metres north of Neadon Upper Hall
including steps and dog kennel
adjoining to north-east

Outbuilding, original purpose uncertain possibly either house or service building
to Neadon Upper Hall (q.v.). Probably late C15 origin, considerably altered with
much rebuilding at south-west end some of which may be C18/C19. Mostly granite
rubble construction with dressed quoins except for east corner (adjoining courtyard
wall) the base of which is constructed of large dressed granite blocks suggesting a
continuation of the courtyard wall (1 section of which is of similar stonework)
from Neadon Upper Hall. Corrugated iron roof with gable ends.
Rectangular range situated parallel to Neadon Upper Hall. Original internal plan
virtually obscured by subsequent alterations, divided into 2 by stone rubble cross
wall extending into first floor.
2 storeys. South-east front has large vehicular entrance at centre with R.S.J. and
C20 sliding doors. Small window opening to right in blocked doorway, with timber
lintel and frame which has square section mullion and stanchion bars now removed.
Tall rectangular window opening to left with low sill and granite lintel. Right
hand gable end has central ground floor doorway with timber lintel and plank door,
first floor has window with timber lintel, blocked pigeon holes in gable above. To
the rear the building is built into the bank and the first floor is approached by
an external flight of stone steps at the north-east end with a dog kennel beneath.
There is a doorway at either end of the rear wall with a pronounced break in the
stonework approximately 1/3 of the way along to the right. The left hand gable end
has a loading door approached from higher ground level.
Interior: one original roof truss survives towards the north-east end which is very
similar in form to the undecorated truss at Neadon Upper Hall, consisting of upper
crucks morticed at the apex, with a triangular strengthening block and threaded
ridge and purlins. In the ground floor room at this end a number of dressed
timbers are re-used as ceiling beams and joists, possibly they came from the
original screen in the Upper Hall. The room above was probably once a granary from
the plaster on its walls. This building is important for its relationship and
proximity to Neadon Upper Hall, although substantially altered its fabric is
clearly early.
